Joan Barnatt and Marna Winter present at The Association of Teacher Educator’s National Conference

Two School of Education faculty members will present at the Annual conference of the Association of Teacher Educators on February 15th, 2015, in Phoenix, Arizona

Their paper, “Cultural Competence in Teacher Candidates: Ready to Teach the World?,” addresses cultural competence of teacher candidates as operationalized by their responses on the Cultural Intelligence Scale (CQS) (Ang and Van Dyne, 2007) which assesses an individual’s cultural awareness in metacognition, cognitive, motivational and behavioral dimensions. The outcomes have implications for teacher preparation, graduate programs, and professional development in efforts to ready teachers to be effective instructors in diverse classrooms and in working with families of diverse populations.
